A brief note on "video game" vs. "videogame"

For the purposes of this blog, I choose to use the one-word spelling of "videogame" as opposed to the more common "video game," which is also how the Oxford English Dictionary spells it. The simple reason is because this is the spelling favored by the Videogame Style Guide and Reference Manual, a book which I plan to comment on in a future post. For now, I'll just say that I respect this guide as the definitive word on writing about games, and I endeavor to follow it as much as possible.

  1. This is truly informative. I often use video game, but gonna use videogame from now on. If you have time, you can visit our Download Games website. I hope you'll have fun playing. :)
